This I have learned over and over…and since there is not much to say concerning the day I believe that this should be the credo for this coming week although I will be hard pressed to practise it all to the fullest extent since I will be dealing with students and parents this week. The performing arts eisteddfod continues in this area of the world and along with it all the hopes and expectations nurtured by pupils and parents alike reverberate through the rhythm of the town. Everyone remains carefully non committal and judgements by adjudicators are accepted with stoic bravery ..but it hurts nevertheless when the criticism of offered talents falls short of the ‘expectations’ of an adjudicator who has issues… And there are surely one or two of them this season who have shown themselves to be full of ‘issues’.
